    Default adding new hard disk: requesting comments and suggestions

    Hi,

    I am going to buy a new HD, and was wondering if you have some advice,
    suggestions, warning or comments:

    I am thinking of buying 120.0GB Western Digital 7200 8M hard disk.

    I am using RH8.0, on ASUS P4B, 1.9GHz. I have a 60GB HD with a CD-RW and
    a CD-burner drives.

    So, does anyone know of any problems with the above drive I am thinking
    of buying?

    I guess I have to install the new HD as slave, but alternatives or
    comments are welcome. After installing, I plan to repartion this drive,
    so that I have some partions on this one, /home and /opt being two. I
    would also like to partition the new one such that i have a separate
    partition to experiment with other Linux flavors, which would see the
    same /home.

    And finally, in addition to any words of wisdom, any pointers to web
    pages which explain the procedure of adding a new HD on a Linux machine
    are also welcome.

    thanks,
    ->HS

    There is a howto which addresses that procedure.

    It's a good drive. I have had one for about 18 months now.

    Which, on the other hand, would make me wonder if there's a better EIDE
    drive by now -- if I was buying now, as you are. Check out
